    Purchased van 5 days ago - ESP/ASR/ABS fault 13th Jul 17 at 8:06 PM
    So purchased a van through work which was picked up 5 days ago. It's a 2013 Peugeot Partner Automatic which was bought from a trade seller in Oxford and delivered to me in Lancashire.

    Today is the first time I've really drive the van and on two separate journeys, the van as displayed faults. The first time it just said ABS System Fault and the second time it displayed an ESP/ASR fault and then alternated to an ABS fault again.

    I am sure this would be covered under the 3 month warranty but the seller has set up a warranty with a third party provider, so do I contact the warranty company or do I contact the trade seller in the first instance?

    I've also emailed the seller asking for the service history which he didn't send with the van but he's not yet responded to that request.

    You take the van back to the seller unless they have a closer branch or allow you to take it somewhere closer to yourself.

    Beware them saying they will pay the bill after you sort it. Quite a few posts saying they have not paid up.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    Was the van purchased in a B2B or a B2C context ? In a B2B contract, your rights may be different than a consumer contract.
    Started my job at the bottom and liked it
